Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

This little stamp is adorable. I love the detail it has. I might have to purchase all of the succulent type stamps in the future!
That being said - I am just starting to learn metal stamping. I only have a 3mm alphabet stamp set. So, this cactus was probably not the best choice for my 1st design stamp. It is huge. Stamping this design is a little difficult for me as I do not know all of the tricks yet. I am hoping to get better with practice! This is no fault in the stamp itself. I just need more practice myself.
Beaducation has super fast shipping, so I am excited to order more items in the future!
